Cultures of Opposition: Jewish Immigrant Workers, New York City, 1881-1905 by Hadassa Kosak

In reassessing the first wave of East European Jewish immigrants to the US from 1881-1905, Kosak (history, Yeshiva U.) explores collective action themes of a population often wrongly perceived as passive victims of capitalism. She views them as remarkable for demanding full economic and political rights as soon as they stepped off the boat into New York tenements and sweatshops. Includes period photos of such venues, union strikes, and a cartoon of established immigrants trying to thwart new immigration. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
